Similarly, in "Another Book," the focus is on the influence of social media content on energy consumption patterns, neglecting the unique impact of math-focused video titles.
Turning to non-fiction literature, "The Prize" by Daniel Yergin provides a comprehensive account of the history and economics of the global petroleum industry. Meanwhile, "Energy and Civilization" by Vaclav Smil offers insights into the interplay between energy transitions and societal developments, though the specific influence of math-themed YouTube videos is not addressed in these works.
In the realm of fiction, books like "The Calculus Diaries" by Jennifer Ouellette and "An Abundance of Katherines" by John Green explore mathematical concepts in engaging narratives. While these works do not directly address petroleum consumption, they do highlight the profound impact of math on human thought and behavior. One might even say they integrate compelling storytelling with integrals quite seamlessly.
Additionally, anecdotal evidence gleaned from social media posts has hinted at a potential link between the coolness of 3Blue1Brown video titles and viewer engagement. One user quipped, "These titles are so 'sinfully' cool, they should come with 'tan-ning' beds!" while another remarked, "Watching 3Blue1Brown feels like a Taylor series expansion - it just keeps going and going, and you can't help but get sucked in!"
Despite the lack of direct scholarly inquiry into this phenomenon, the existing literature and social discourse offer intriguing glimpses into the potential impact of math-focused content on consumer behavior and preferences.

As we delved into the data, it became evident that the coolness factor of the video titles, as perceived by both human and AI observers, had a palpable effect on the petroleum consumption patterns in Turkmenistan. This unexpected, yet intriguing relationship prompts one to ponder the influence of engaging mathematics content on seemingly unrelated economic variables. It seems that even in the realm of petroleum consumption, the allure of differential equations and linear algebra cannot be discounted.
While this connection may seem as perplexing as trying to integrate e^x without the constant of integration, the evidence is clear - there is a tangible association between the captivating nature of 3Blue1Brown video titles and the demand for petroleum in Turkmenistan. Perhaps, in the grand scheme of things, intriguing math videos do have the potential to fuel a country's economic activity - though not in the way one might initially expect.
[[LITERATURE REVIEW]]
The relationship between YouTube video titles and economic indicators has been a subject of interest in recent literature. Smith et al. (2018) examined the impact of clickbait titles on online consumer behavior, while Doe and Jones (2019) investigated the correlation between video title lengths and advertising revenues. However, the specific link between the coolness of 3Blue1Brown video titles and petroleum consumption in Turkmenistan has remained unexplored until now.
In "Book," the authors find that captivating and visually stimulating content can sway consumer preferences, but they do not delve into the realm of mathematical explanations. Similarly, in "Another Book," the focus is on the influence of social media content on energy consumption patterns, neglecting the unique impact of math-focused video titles.
Turning to non-fiction literature, "The Prize" by Daniel Yergin provides a comprehensive account of the history and economics of the global petroleum industry. Meanwhile, "Energy and Civilization" by Vaclav Smil offers insights into the interplay between energy transitions and societal developments, though the specific influence of math-themed YouTube videos is not addressed in these works.
In the realm of fiction, books like "The Calculus Diaries" by Jennifer Ouellette and "An Abundance of Katherines" by John Green explore mathematical concepts in engaging narratives. While these works do not directly address petroleum consumption, they do highlight the profound impact of math on human thought and behavior. One might even say they integrate compelling storytelling with integrals quite seamlessly.
Additionally, anecdotal evidence gleaned from social media posts has hinted at a potential link between the coolness of 3Blue1Brown video titles and viewer engagement. One user quipped, "These titles are so 'sinfully' cool, they should come with 'tan-ning' beds!" while another remarked, "Watching 3Blue1Brown feels like a Taylor series expansion - it just keeps going and going, and you can't help but get sucked in!"
Despite the lack of direct scholarly inquiry into this phenomenon, the existing literature and social discourse offer intriguing glimpses into the potential impact of math-focused content on consumer behavior and preferences.
[[RESULTS]]
The analysis of the data revealed a remarkably strong correlation between the coolness of 3Blue1Brown video titles and petroleum consumption in Turkmenistan. The correlation coefficient of 0.9243418 suggests a robust positive relationship between these seemingly unrelated variables. This finding may cause one to wonder whether mathematical elegance has the potential to fuel not only the intellect but also a nation's thirst for petroleum - talk about a derivative of unexpected outcomes!
The high r-squared value of 0.8544078 indicates that approximately 85.44% of the variability in petroleum consumption in Turkmenistan can be explained by the coolness of 3Blue1Brown video titles. This significant explanatory power astonishes much like the solution to a particularly vexing optimization problem - it's not just any local maximum, it's the global solution to the question of pop math impacting the liquid commodity.
Additionally, the p-value being less than 0.01 provides strong evidence against the null hypothesis and supports the existence of a genuine connection between the visual appeal of math-focused content and the demand for petroleum. One might say it's as clear as a well-constructed proof that the allure of mathematical concepts holds real weight in shaping this particular economic variable.
The scatterplot depicting the correlation (Fig. 1) further emphasizes the unmistakable linear relationship between the coolness of 3Blue1Brown video titles and petroleum consumption in Turkmenistan. Much like the integral of a constant, this connection appears to persist consistently across the years under study, without fluctuating erratically - a true example of steady, predictable behavior in an otherwise complex economic landscape.
In summary, the results of this investigation indicate a compelling association between the coolness factor of 3Blue1Brown video titles and petroleum consumption in Turkmenistan. This correlation begs the question: who knew that math could have such a profound impact on a nation's demand for crude oil? It seems that in the world of economics, just as in math, there are always unexpected constants.

See what else correlates with Petroluem consumption in Turkmenistan
Correlation is a measure of how much the variables move together. If it is 0.99, when one goes up the other goes up. If it is 0.02, the connection is very weak or non-existent. If it is -0.99, then when one goes up the other goes down. If it is 1.00, you probably messed up your correlation function.
r^{2} = 0.8544078 (Coefficient of determination)
This means 85.4% of the change in the one variable (i.e., Petroluem consumption in Turkmenistan) is predictable based on the change in the other (i.e., How cool 3Blue1Brown YouTube video titles are) over the 7 years from 2015 through 2021.
p < 0.01, which is statistically significant(Null hypothesis significance test)
The p-value is 0.0029. 0.0029024196440532416000000000
The p-value is a measure of how probable it is that we would randomly find a result this extreme. More specifically the p-value is a measure of how probable it is that we would randomly find a result this extreme if we had only tested one pair of variables one time.
But I am a p-villain. I absolutely did not test only one pair of variables one time. I correlated hundreds of millions of pairs of variables. I threw boatloads of data into an industrial-sized blender to find this correlation.
Who is going to stop me? p-value reporting doesn't require me to report how many calculations I had to go through in order to find a low p-value!
On average, you will find a correaltion as strong as 0.92 in 0.29% of random cases. Said differently, if you correlated 345 random variables Which I absolutely did.
with the same 6 degrees of freedom, Degrees of freedom is a measure of how many free components we are testing. In this case it is 6 because we have two variables measured over a period of 7 years. It's just the number of years minus ( the number of variables minus one ), which in this case simplifies to the number of years minus one.
you would randomly expect to find a correlation as strong as this one.
[ 0.56, 0.99 ] 95% correlation confidence interval (using the Fisher z-transformation)
The confidence interval is an estimate the range of the value of the correlation coefficient, using the correlation itself as an input. The values are meant to be the low and high end of the correlation coefficient with 95% confidence.
This one is a bit more complciated than the other calculations, but I include it because many people have been pushing for confidence intervals instead of p-value calculations (for example: NEJM. However, if you are dredging data, you can reliably find yourself in the 5%. That's my goal!
All values for the years included above: If I were being very sneaky, I could trim years from the beginning or end of the datasets to increase the correlation on some pairs of variables. I don't do that because there are already plenty of correlations in my database without monkeying with the years.
Still, sometimes one of the variables has more years of data available than the other. This page only shows the overlapping years. To see all the years, click on "See what else correlates with..." link above.

Why this works
- Data dredging: I have 25,237 variables in my database. I compare all these variables against each other to find ones that randomly match up. That's 636,906,169 correlation calculations! This is called “data dredging.” Instead of starting with a hypothesis and testing it, I instead abused the data to see what correlations shake out. It’s a dangerous way to go about analysis, because any sufficiently large dataset will yield strong correlations completely at random.
- Lack of causal connection: There is probably
Because these pages are automatically generated, it's possible that the two variables you are viewing are in fact causually related. I take steps to prevent the obvious ones from showing on the site (I don't let data about the weather in one city correlate with the weather in a neighboring city, for example), but sometimes they still pop up. If they are related, cool! You found a loophole.
no direct connection between these variables, despite what the AI says above. This is exacerbated by the fact that I used "Years" as the base variable. Lots of things happen in a year that are not related to each other! Most studies would use something like "one person" in stead of "one year" to be the "thing" studied. - Observations not independent: For many variables, sequential years are not independent of each other. If a population of people is continuously doing something every day, there is no reason to think they would suddenly change how they are doing that thing on January 1. A simple
Personally I don't find any p-value calculation to be 'simple,' but you know what I mean.
p-value calculation does not take this into account, so mathematically it appears less probable than it really is. - Very low n: There are not many data points included in this analysis. Even if the p-value is high, we should be suspicious of using so few datapoints in a correlation.
